Wired calls it a trend: notebooks with service plans

by Jason Preston on December 16, 2008

Blogging has done a lot to extend the idea of mobile technology. The desire (and growing ability) for people to post from anywhere about anything has led to technologies that happily support the blogger addiction—for a small fee.

I predicted a few years ago that laptops would be sold in the future with cell-phone like data plans attached. After all, the gap between the phone and the computer is getting smaller and smaller as technology moves forward.

Wired has called it the next netbook trend. On the one hand, I think it’s cool that we’re seeing more modular connectivity, and it’s going to open a whole world for bloggers and small business people to be on the move while keeping track of their blog.

On the other hand, it’s a bad pricing model for the consumer.

as technology moves fast forward so as the price itself. still most people are willing to pay for it.

I have to agree with you there. I think it’s great that laptops are getting improved connectivity. But yeh i do think people will pay for the best things even if they become more expensive.

I’m surprised you didn’t mention the kindle. $350 for a device with unlimited lifetime data and a basic web browser. Plus the option to pay for additional content.
